the tech place im at has a custom health cheek program which removes most crap - think its just norton part of it, most spyware and avs should clean it away

i have seen this when you install limewire in the past. i work at circuit city (firedog) and i see a lot of virus'/spyware come through. but this one can be a pain the rear end to remove.

we get many callouts & pc's in our shop for cleanups of this antivirus2008/2009 rubbish.

best removal tool ive found is running combofix in safe mode

http://download.bleepingcomputer.com/sUBs/ComboFix.exe

most antivirus/spyware apps wont protect against it with standard definitions, as numerous variants are released daily.. (something like nod32's heuristics may well detect even new ones)

one customer we had actually registered for the spftware, which cost him £84, then £20 every 30mins was taken out of his account, until barclaycard put a block on his card.

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?

Impressed you have kept this alive this long EP! So many sites have come and gone. :(

Just did some crude math and I apparently joined almost 18yrs ago, how is that possible???
